Norah Needles North Koreans For 'Going Limp After 30 Seconds'
Hardball/NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Ouch! Norah O'Donnell knows how to get a guy where it hurts. And Kim Jong Il might be feeling 'ronrier' than ever.

On this evening's Hardball, Norah, guest-hosting for Chris Matthews, discussed the failed North Korean missile tests with three separate panels. In each case, she used the same metaphor to describe the failure:

To her first panel, composed of congressmen Dan Burton [R-IN] and Bill Pascrell [D-NJ], Norah noted:

"We saw the Taepodong missile essentially exploded and went limp into the sea of Japan after 45 seconds."

Next, with guests Michael Scheuer and Tyler Drumheller - both former CIA officials - she mentioned:

"We realized after 30 seconds, this missile went limp." [Yikes - performance down from 45 to only 30 seconds.]

Finally, with former RNC Chairman/VA Governor Jim Gilmore [a steadfast fellow, I might mention] and Dem strategist Hillary Rosen, O'Donnell observed

"The long range missile essentially failed and went limp after 30 seconds."

On a day when Viagra was again in the news, you have to figure Norah selected her simile with malice aforethought.

Or from first-hand experience (no pun intended ;)

Did it dawn on anyone that they were only testing the 1st Stage booster and the upper stages were unfueled and that is why it went "limp"? Maybe it wasn't an unsuccessful launch because the same upper stages already work on their shorter range missiles without the lower booster stage.

Just a thought.

"Soju, a clear alcohol is an acquired taste and is the national Korean drink."

Ok we have a new drink for American Bartenders.

The Kim Il. 10 oz Soju, 10oz Vodka, 10oz Sake, a splash of cola and 10 ozs fruit flavored koolaid.

35 seconds after you drink it, you fall down.

Maybe Norah has something similar to that in her personal life that is weighing heavily on her mind and the Freudian Slip keeps repeating itself.

...........dong missile essentially exploded and went limp into the sea of Japan after 45 seconds."

Sounds like a personal problem for Kim Jong-mentally-il.

being so ronery for so long, I guess it was to be expected

Or maybe they failed just as reported and you are vastly over estimating the Commies. This is a regime that lives on bellicose threats, saber rattling and propaganda. The idea they would knowingly plan for failure that would cause them such a massive loss of face is absurd

If she wasn't such a Koolaid liberal, I could, possibly, develop a "Norah Fettish":

Maybe this multiple missile failure triggered PTSD in Norah from too many experiences of having something prematurely explode and go limp ...

Oh my eyes.

She must tan with a sack on her head. Her head is pasty white, while her body is tanned.

I agree with your initial point though, it's a shame she's a Kool-Aid drinking liberal. No fun dating someone you'd spend all night arguing with.

"Soju, a clear alcohol is an acquired taste and is the national Korean drink."

Not really an acquired taste, it closely resembles and ordinary grain alcohol. Mixes well with other things such as orange juice and such.

It is much like everclear but not usually as strong. Depends on source.

I'm sure she was thinking of all the other leftie guys who have disappointed her with "erectile dysfunction"....... her real peeve with this "projectile dysfunction" is that it's such a disappointing story to report - not nearly as exciting as one in which the DING DONG-2 made it out into the middle of the North Pacific......... all these leftist men who leave Nora frustrated and wanting more.........

"We saw the Taepodong missile essentially exploded and went limp into the sea of Japan after 45 seconds."

Is "taepo" Korean for "limp"?

It's gettin' to the point where we're gonna need a scorecard. I think I got this right:

Mary McCarthy is the "snitch bitch."
Jane Fonda is the "witch bitch."
Cindy Sheehan is the "ditch witch."

NK's long range missile wasn't in the air a mere matter of seconds. It flew for more than seven minutes and was headed for the waters around Hawaii. Heard this on CBS early morning news, WBZ in Boston this am. Two anchors, both looked nervous. I couldn't help wondering if we didn't take it out with a laser or something. To let it fly 7 minutes...that's dicey.
